Under 5s

Under 5s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when visiting The Vench. We have a range of exciting play equipment, including a sand pit, mud kitchen, trampoline and a pump track which is particularly popular with little people. Feel free to bring bikes/scooters and helmets with you!

We are on a mission to ensure that all children and young people in Lockleaze live happy and healthy lives. Support us!

Toddler Play Group


A friendly group set up by local parents who identified a need for parent & toddler groups in Lockleaze.

Join this group of parents & toddlers for plenty of free play in our exciting adventure playground. We recommend you bring your own bikes/scooters and helmets, as the pump track is a bit hit with little people!

Bring your own hot drinks & snacks.

This is a term time only group!
